Challenge #24 at CTO - My First Post as a DT Member!!


Good morning and welcome to Celebrate the Occasion's Challenge #24! I am so excited to be posting my first project as a DT Member at Celebrate the Occasion! I feel so honored to be a part of this team. I have been participating in their challenges for a few months and have had a lot of fun. There's always a nice variety to their challenges which is nice. Now for this week's challenge, create something for a kid's birthday. It's been a long time since my girls were kids, so I had a blast making this card. I used my favorite cartridge, Create a Critter and of course DCWV Nana's Kids paper stack. And you just can't pass up using googly eyes on these cute cuts!! The cardstock is from The Paper Company, a Prima flower near her ear, ribbon and jewel from my Michael's, nail head from Walmart, Stickles, Sakura White Gelly Roll and Zig markers for doodling.  The sentiment stamp is from a My Pink Stamper set, so perfect for this cut and I used my Stampin' Up punches to create the mats for the sentiment. Well, I hope you get inspired by my card and be sure to stop by all my fellow team members and see what they have created. They are a talented bunch!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! Oh, and don't forget to have FUN with the challenge!!!!  :)
